Many Protestants today--whether Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, or Episcopalian--have never understood how or why each has different traditions and beliefs. Historically, each denomination comes from the same beginnings--the Reformation. Authors Bell and Sumner take readers on a journey from Martin Luther's time through medieval Europe, Old England, colonial American to today, explaining not only big schisms (like the break with Rome) but smaller ones (like John Wesley's break from the Anglican church to form modern Methodism.) Covering everything from Henry VIII's agenda to the North American Great Awakening, The Complete Idiot's Guide® to the Reformation and Protestantism puts everything in perspective.
